Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 08:13 PM) SIGN WILL HILL
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 08:14 PM) There are some decent FAs I hope we go after, we have like $48 mil in cap space, plus more once we get rid of Chris Johnson and Calvin Pace.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 08:14 PM) We'll have over $50 mil to spend
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 08:52 PM) sign everyone!!!!

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 09:18 PM) I hope we keep Harvin
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 09:28 PM) I like Harvin but I don't think we should pay him that much
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 09:29 PM) but if we can get a WR keep him
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 09:40 PM) idk how cap works sometime
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 09:41 PM) how can Denver have 31 mil in space?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 09:43 PM) but I guess since they have to pay both Thomas this year that will go fast
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 09:45 PM) and have to pay miller next year
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:20 PM) Are they not counting PEyton Manning?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:22 PM) A lot of their players increase cap hits after this season
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:22 PM) you can work the numbers
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:25 PM) if we release Harvin, we won't get him back most likely. Hes the most dynamic offensive player we have had in a while.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:26 PM) Plus he has no guaranteed money so we can release him at any time for no cap hits. Maybe they can rework his contract, but I hope we keep him
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:26 PM) I think he will awesome in Chan's offense, maybe worth the $10 mil
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 10:40 PM) We still have to pay Mo too
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:47 PM) yup. We also happen to be in the big years of Mangolds' and Brick's contracts
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:48 PM) Brick either restructures after this season or is released, noway he stays at $14 mil
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:48 PM) I think he does restructure though, can't imagine Brick wanting to play elsewhere. I see him as a career Jet
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:51 PM) need to re-sign Demario Davis and Damon Harrison as well
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:52 PM) they shouldn't cost much though
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 10:57 PM) I'd really love to bring in Franklin or Iupati
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:59 PM) Franklin, Iupati, or Boling I would be happy with. We need a good OG.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:59 PM) I think that Oday would be fine as a starter for one spot, he showed promise. Plus it would be a competition between Oday, Winters, and Dozier.

Isn't Thomas Jones a free agent after this season?
If so, i think we should give him a look, i really like the way he runs and the Bears will probably be looking to ship him so they can feature Cedric Benson next year..

The Bears can choose to retain him or let him go with out the cap hit. I think they are leaning towards letting him go so that they can make Benson the featured back.

and also although he is a good back i think he is getting close to hitting 30 yrs of age. hes been in the nfl for 7 years if i am correct...we are a young team so i think we need to go after a younger back

If he was a UFA, I would sign him for a 2-3 year deal. He tore it up today. But I rather get a young back like Turner too. But I wouldnt mind signing Thomas, especially since we wouldnt have to give any draft picks up. Then we can let Barlow go and have Thomas/Washington be our duo.

He is a great back but the Bears aren't going to let him go just yet. Buck and Aikman brought up the point I seem to remember that teams nowadays don't just have one every down back, they have a couple backs who contribute and when rushing in tandem, Jones and Benson have done a super job.
A lot of money is invested in Benson but why break up a solid tandem - it's like with Bush and McAllister in NO, they are a great pair of RBs and it would be stupid if they don't keep both in the coming couple of seasons.
In the long term (perhaps another 2 seasons) the Bears may say "we only want to keep one back as it is extremely expensive to keep both" but I doubt they do this after this season or next season. With both in their backfield their offense clicked last night meaning pressure was taken off of Grossman and Rex is a QB who succeeds without having to carry the whole of the offense.
